Hike Billy Goat Trail Section B

Maryland Billy Goat Trail Section B

Added by

Wildflowers, lush woods, and Potomac River views make for an unforgettable hike. 

Park in the lot on MacArthur Blvd. (see map) to access the trailhead. Trail is well-defined but little-traveled. You may want to bring a field guide for identifying wildflowers and the critters of the region.

Less Crowds

While not as grand and less exciting of a hike than section A, this hike does offer some pretty spectacular views of the river, some neat rocks to scramble, and has significantly less crowds than the more popular section A.
